Maurizio Sarri gives positive Gonzalo Higuain injury update

Loftus-Cheek could be one of Europe's best - Sarri

The Blues have lost three of their past four away matches in the Premier League but are still four points better off than under Antonio Conte at this stage last season.

"The potential of Loftus-Cheek is very high".

The Blues can still qualify for next season's Champions League by virtue of winning the Europa League in Maurizio Sarri's first season in charge. "First of all, because it means we are in the final and I am happy with that", Sarri said.

The France global has scored nine goals in Europe but has seen his first-team opportunities in the Premier League restricted by Sarri, with Gonzalo Higuaín signed on loan in January.

The arrival of Gonzalo Higuain as the replacement for Alvaro Morata in January once again hurt his chances of establishing himself as a regular starter domestically though.

Meanwhile, Eden Hazard is one of several first-team stars who should come back into the starting XI as Chelsea continue their pursuit of a top-four finish. "It would be hard to play them with my history with the club". I don't like that, ' said Sarri.

"I have been through a lot of tough moments in my career".

"If you give someone like Giroud space in the six-yard box that's how good he can be".

The remaining tie pits Benfica against Eintracht Frankfurt, with the victor facing Chelsea or Slavia Prague in the semi-finals.

Portugal takes on Germany as Benfica are drawn with Eintracht Frankfurt for the third quarter-final.

Chelsea will travel to Goodison Park on Sunday for Premier League action, a much smaller trip than the one they made midweek for their Europa League 0-5 victory over Dynamo Kyiv.

"I prefer to face them in the final".

"Of course, an Arsenal final sounds good from the British side of things".

An all-Spanish affair for the second quarter-final. Having said that, I think that away goal was crucial for us.

"Chelsea are probably one of the favourites and the performance last night proves why".
